A pumpkin carving party has become my signature Halloween soirée. To make it simple on guests I supply the pumpkins and all of the carving tools. It seems like each year better, more cutting edge craving tools can be found at grocery stores and culinary chains thats why I asked you to help me update my collection of craving tools. You headed off to market in search of precision knives, sharp scoopers, and anything fabulous in between. You saved an amazing selection of useful tools in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag Pumpkin Carving Tools.
From drills to stencils to scoopers you found it all. I plan on investing in several of these knives that gruaig_rua discovered. With a sharp, serrated blade these dishwasher safe knives have a nonslip handle which is important when slicing round, unstable pumpkins. Take a look at all of the tools by scrolling to the right below.

In a recent post about Citizen Bean's coffee of the month club, I mentioned beer of the month clubs and realized that the beer fans out there wanted to hear about those, too! So, if you prefer the alcoholic type of brew, check out this Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club.
A friend of mine recently got a gift subscription to this club, and the variety of beers offered was very impressive; most of them were great hidden gems I'd never heard of. Every month, you get 12 beers delivered to your door, selected from microbreweries across the country and the globe. This would be a great gift for any beer aficionados in your life. The company offers three different subscriptions, so to find out about each, read more
I enjoy using ingredients reserved for a specific type of cooking to create something totally different and unexpected. Take apples; for example, crisps, pies, and sweets usually come to mind. That's why I got excited when I found this delicious, savory dinner recipe. In this dish, apples are paired with buttered salmon and fresh fennel for a scrumptious meal that is exciting and distinct. To experiment with apples in a whole new way, read more

I recently attended the Food & Wine 2007 American Wine Awards. While there I tasted some great wine, and feasted on some tasty eats. The folks from Delfina were serving up tasty pork sandwiches, and as I waited for mine, I snapped this photo. I think it's delicious, but understand that others might not agree. So tell me, how does this photo make you feel?
The natural lighting will be replaced with orange Christmas lights and an excessive amount of votives. Black rat silhouette cut-outs will scurry up the staircase while spooky music plays in the entryway. The tables will be covered with black spiderweb tablecloths and piles of skeletons will act as creepy centerpieces.
The food and candy will be served in bright orange bowls, the drinks in orange plastic keg cups, and the cupcakes will fill the cupcake stand. Black, glittery candelabra add a touch of chicness. The punch bowl will rest inside a large fog making copper cauldron.
Now that you know how I am decorating my Halloween party, how will you be decorating yours?
